CHARACTER & SERVICE

Character education is a fundamental component of the Sullins Academy experience.  It is essential to develop these ethical principles, as prosperity in life is not solely reliant upon academic success.  The code of conduct for a Sullins Academy student is established through a set of monthly character traits and a manner of the week.  There is a direct link between the development of good character, a solid work ethic, and academic success.  A preeminent learning environment is created when mutual respect is shared between teachers, students, and peers.  A school wide approach to character education allows students to be exposed to these fundamental values year after year. Character lessons are woven into academics, physical education and athletics, art, music, and, of course, service learning.  Monthly acts of kindness allow students to transform a character trait into an act of service.  

COMMUNITY SERVICE

Community service is an important component of character education at Sullins and demonstrates to students that how they lead their lives really does matter. Children in all grades take part in all-school projects as well as grade-level projects.


The community service program seeks to establish within the Sullins school community a sense of civic responsibility rooted in the habit of service. The program provides a wide variety of opportunities for children to reach out to the broader community with a giving heart and a willingness to serve. Understanding the need, and that they can make a difference, benefits our students and the community for years to come.
